Shatta Wale Reveals The Inspiration Behind His Popular Hit Song “On God”



Widely revered King of Ghana’s dancehall music, Shatta Wale, has finally revealed what motivated him to compose the popular song “One God.”

Last year, the “My Level” hitmaker surprised his fans with an Afrobeats Gospel-like song titled ‘On God’.

The tune was well received by Ghanaian music lovers, and after a months of release, it became the new jam at that time.

The award-winning dancehall musician appeared as a guest on Giovanni Caleb’s TV3 ‘Showbiz 360’ television program, and out of curiosity, Giovanni asked the dancehall musician what state he was in when he wrote ‘On God’.

Shatta Wale then responded to Giovanni by saying that the song came about, after he had received numerous negative vibes from Ghanaian fans who were comparing him to other musicians like Black Sherif.

Adding to this, he reiterated that, he is very prayerful and thus prayed to Almighty God about the situation he found himself in, and within that same period, ‘On God’ was written and recorded.

“Okay, with that one, I will be real about that. As I was in America, people were talking about me, comparing me to people and stuff. For instance, when Black Sherif dropped his single, everybody started saying a whole lot of things”.

“And I also pray a lot, and I was like, God, you can’t let these people get us like that. Let’s do something. So, within like 45 minutes, I played the beats, recorded everything, and went to sleep,”.

Shatta further stated that his colleague, Jupitar, was very supportive, as he helped the song gain traction and also played a part in the video’s direction.

“I sent the song to Jupitar, who was also in America. He was surprised when he heard the song. So, Jupiter gave me the motivation to put the song out and shoot a video. Jupiter also helped in directing the video, as well as pushing the song. It is good like that,” he said.
